Overview: There's no doubt that VR and AR will influence and provide new and innovative entertainment and gaming experiences. However, one largely underserved application in VR and AR is for healthcare. Not only is there emerging research and innovation in providing diagnostic and therapeutic applications for patients using VR and AR, there is a storytelling aspect, often aimed at physicians and non-patients, that can help inspire empathy and understanding of various disease states.
